What to expect
Similar to The St. Anthony elementary program, middle and high school students at St. Anthony begin their days by entering a world of purpose and mindfulness. A student comfortable with his or her environment will have less anxiety about the day ahead, and therefore will have a greater opportunity for success.
The St. Anthony School embraces the incorporation of self-awareness into daily student life, maintaining a belief that the whole child must be served and connected to on a personal level for him or her to succeed and thrive. Our motto, “Connect before redirect,” is a daily reminder that we must build a relationship of trust with each child before he or she can learn effectively.
Our TEKS-approved curriculum encompasses:
STEMscopes science, an interactive and experiential learning course that incorporates labs, distance learning activities and more.
myPerspectives by Pearson, a fully immersive online English curriculum to teach vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension and a real-time writing lab.
Personalized algebra, geometry, precalculus and calculus classes that are individualized per initial assessment and adjusted as needed.
Interactive history programs featuring field studies, group projects, with courses in state, U.S. and world history, geography, government and economics.
Electives in art, theater, creative writing, health, Spanish, photography and Adaptive PE.
More than a school, The St. Anthony approach includes comprehensive multidisciplinary coordination, aligning the best interests of each child with internal and external support. This includes dialogue with therapists and doctors as well as extensive family interaction and therapy provided onsite daily. Our goal is to promote self-advocacy while strategizing on effective outcomes given a child’s recent testing, diagnoses, medications, academic performance and social interactions to individualize goal setting. We accomplish this through our reflective modeling system, the coaching card, to help students receive immediate feedback on how they manage their day with the ultimate goal of setting standards of behavior, managing their time and organizational skills.
